NOTES:
Chris Stamey — “Skillet played drums,
I played bass. Recorded in Raleigh at Scores/Slackmates,
and at Modern, my place.” “Addendum: I forgot to add
that the piano player on the Forever Valentine
Whiskeytown sessions was Ben Folds. My memory was
jogged by his smashing show this Saturday at the Cradle.”

Skillet Gilmore — “Forever Valentine was recorded
around Xmas ’97. The band at the time (for the purposes
of recording) was Ryan, Caitlin, Mike Daly, Ed Crawford
on guitar, Chris Stamey on bass and me.” “Although the
record was made in about a week, the challenge was actually
that Ryan wanted to make a record without the label knowing
about it. And so we did.”
